, radical choices for secretary of defense in a very long time. >> meantime, senator john mccain says that hagel is not qualified, but he thinks it's time to go ahead with a vote since enough time has gone by to ask questions and now shall the white house is worried because two important nominations are going so slowly not only hagel, but john brennan to head the cia. >> between john brennan, the cia director and chuck hagel secretary of defense, we want to make sure we have them sitting in the the chairs working and i don't want something to have been missed because of the hangup in washington. >> reporter: and the vote is expected sometime after congress returns to work on february 25th, harris. >> harris: steve centanni, thank you. florida senator marco rubio talking about the white house plan for immigration reform saying quote, it's dead on arrival. as you may know, rubio was one of the republican and democrat senators who reached a break through bipartisan break through. another member of the so-called gang of 8, john mccain tweeted, headed down to southern arizona to assess bo
she takes more money from lobbyists and special interests than any candidate, including john mccain, that shows that she doesn't have a sense that we've got to change our business is done in washington. >> ultimately, what i'd like to see is a system of public financing of campaigns and i'm a co-sponsor of the proposal that's in the senate right now. that's what we have to fight for. >> that was candidate obama during the 2010 campaign. the president railed against super pacs, then made an end justifies the means argument in 2012. look, the obama folks can rationalize this all they want. yes, they'll disclose donors and they'll be accepting small donor money but this is the campaign finance world we live in after citizens united. but offering this kind of access to big donors was precisely what bovm w obama was campaigning against in 2007 and 2008. every political strategist involved in the campaign told us on this show, both sides of the aisle, they all believe the campaign finance system is a mess, yet we continue to see a perpetuation of the so-called flawed system like what we s
's no pressure on the administration except from the syrian rebels to do anything. >> and from john mccain and former senator kerry. and others. he wasn't as forward leaning as mccain and others. in the senate we are arguing we had to rethink this. hillary clinton and leon panetta and chairman dempsey and others argued and the president rejected it. >> that's the governoring reality. john kerry wants to do x, y and z but he works for the president now. i don't think you are going to see that much different. you are going to see the seron rebels getting something from america where they used to get nothing. it's not necessarily going to change the calculus. >> it's going to be more money and through non-governmental organizations. >> the other interesting question is, is it too late to affect the make up of the opposition? the islamists, the al qaeda affiliated groups have been getting lot of weapons through turkey, through saudi arabia. they are very powerful in that coalition. we spent two years not supporting the sort of people we would like to see take over syria. so, it might be too la
john mccain. gabby giffords' political action group, the group she formed with her husband, astronaut mark kelly asks americans for responsible solutions. americans for responsible solutions sut this ad, which is going to be running after the state of the union apparently on fox and msnbc and on cnn. >> we have a problem. where we shop, where we pray, where our children go to school. but there are solutions we can agree on. even gunowners like us. take it from me. congress must act. let's get this done. >> in addition to running after the state of the union tomorrow night on cable networks, that ad is scheduled to air on local broadcast tv in washington, d.c. according to the group that produced the ad, they're also planning on running this in local media markets, reaching the constituents of all four top congressional leaders from both houses and both parties. so that's mitch mcconnell, harry reid, nancy pelosi and john boehner. in response i think to the number of democrats and the first lady bringing victims of gun violence with them as guests to the state of the union this year, t
, once in the stands for george w. bush. on the subject of dreams and nightmares, guess which one john mccain was having in 2007? a big yawn from harry reid in 2010. and for vice president biden, perhaps a moment of meditation in 2011. mr. biden's hands have their very own chapter in the state of the union history book. so much sitting and standing and clapping, easy to see why he might have a timing issue. >> less than 1%. >> reporter: -- there is the air boxing fist pump -- >> that dream is why the working class kid from scranton can sit behind me. >> reporter: and, of course, the palms to the sky shrug. >> nobody messes with joe. am i right? >> reporter: we have the constitution to thanks for this annual address. and even if the state of the union is animated, sleepy, or dreamy, according to the president -- >> the state of our union will always be strong. >> john berman, this is why i love you. let me just say this, shouldn't everyone in that sacred room just always sort of assume you can be on camera at any moment in time, right? on your best behavior. >> absolutely. drink 12 cups of cof
like john mccain who say, why don't we just go home? why would we give this added authority to the president. and then in talking to senior administration officials, they are saying, quote, that it is a cynical device, and it is a complete sham. and the reason they believe that, as one put it to me, is, look, it is like telling somebody, okay, we know you have to cut two of your fingers off, but you get to choose which ones. not much of a choice. >> okay. gloria borger, my thanks to you. >> sure. >> while gloria was discussing, washington leaders back and forth at one another. they are standing together to honor rosa parks. there he is, speaking earlier, president obama, also had congressional leaders and more than 50 of her relatives gather, at the capital to unveil this bronze statue of her. she stands nine feet tall. she is the first black woman to be honored with a statue there. >> rosa parks' singular act of disobedience launched a movement. the tired feet of those who walked the dusty roads of montgomery helped a nation see that to which it had once been blind. it is b
related or similar to what his tax increases have done. >> but at the same time, senator, both john mccain as well as speaker boehner have both called these cuts incredibly dangerous as well. >> well, it's dangerous in the sense that most of the cuts or at least half of them are coming directly from the military, which has already experienced some budget cuts. so the defense system in our country is only about 20% of total spending, but 50% of the cuts come from it. and in that sense, it does weaken our security. but defense spending will still increase 16% over the next ten years. so, there are no cuts here. there's a slight reduction in the increases of spending. the real damage to our economy is going to come from the tax increases and other policies, such as the implementation of obama care. >> so, arianna, what were you hinting at before? you think these cuts will create more employment? will weaken economic growth? is that what you're suggesting? >> exactly. and, you know, i think senator demint and many republicans really believe that the major problem we're facing is the deficit an
